In the beginning the book covers the whole web design process of a medium to large web design project. Further, it moves on into guides and examples of creating sitemaps, structure, moving on to individual elements like headers, navbars, content areas, button, fonts and graphics and so on.
The book includes a large number of helpful illustrations, schemes and screenshots. Definitely recommend!
Nothing more, nothing less then expected.
